LONE TREE FARM offers a beautiful setting for you and your horse, offering shows, schooling, retirement, lessons and sales.  We are located on a breathtaking river bottom which has great footing, wet or dry.  We have over 125 cross country jumps, from Elementary to Intermediate with affordable school rates of only  $40 per day.  Bring your trainer for schooling, or schedule a lesson with Connie.

Formerly standing at stud was Bridon Beale Street, a registered Irish Draught Stallion who we lost in December of 2018.  We have some frozen semen for those who are interested in breeding.  And we proudly have many of his offspring on site from foals to horses in competition - some of which may be for sale.  .


Our facility is perfect for horses in training, lay ups, retirement or raising your next foal!  We also have one of the best training programs around.  Click on "Services" from the menu for our training options and prices.
